If it has a starting capacitor and it's put on backwards then the motor will probably run backwards.

But I agree with mpilchfamily in that the blade will cut in both directions and it may be running in the correct direction.

Are you sure it's running back wards? The motor is only going to spin in one direction. Besides a tile cutting wheel doesn't have to spin in a particular direction.

It definitely is running backwards according to the directional arrow of spin.

The starter cap was wired backward...thanks. Was purchased at an auction and well..there you go.
